“Why are you so nasty about Tories for holding a different opinion?”
Tell you what, Jeff, you fucking prick, when their ‘opinions’ no longer result in homeless people freezing to death, vulnerable children being separated from their parents etc, I’ll stop calling them cunts. Ok?
Mozilla just laid off 70 fantastic people. If you can help them - open positions, offering helpful conversations and references, anything else - please say so.
Use #MozillaLifeboat as an umbrella tag for easy finding. (It's already flowing on the birdsite.)
If you've been affected, I'm happy to chat directly. Also have some open positions (see rest of this thread). But doesn't have to be today - take time to recover if you can.
Most of all: thank you folks for making the web better.
Someone triggered the snowflake! Hilarious!

Sacha Baron Cohen used a metaphor involving a restaurant owner and neo-Nazis to tear into Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s championing of freedom of expression on the platform. https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/sacha-baron-cohen-facebook-mark-zuckerberg_n_5da98d5be4b0e71d65b73a67?ncid=other_twitter_cooo9wqtham&utm_campaign=share_twitter
Anyone remembering the Logitech iFeel Mouse?
It's a mouse from the early 2000s and featured integrated haptic/force feedback using vibrations.
It sounds silly, but it gave UI controls like buttons, window-borders or links a tactile feedback and a texture you could feel when hovering over them with the cursor.
Frankly it was quite amazing and I really wish it would have caught on.
There has been quite something going on in the React community. My interpretation: you cannot ignore politics in your community. For some people, these "politics" are a life-or-death issue, so by ignoring these topics you actively exclude them and invite toxic people instead.
